First off: For the Matrix afficiando, this one has got to rank in the top 10 of audio perfection. Balance and clarity of a SBD seemlessly combined with the full punch of an AUD. Beautiful stuff here. And the show does in no way suck. Playin' is about as good as it gets.
If your Friday needs a kick in the pants, I can think of no better option to seriously put a dent in your ass.

Ever stop and think just how damn lucky we are to have this treasure trove of true gems to pick and chose from? We are truly spoiled beyond belief. There is NOTHING like a Grateful Dead concert.

'damn lucky', 'spoiled beyond belief', ain't it the truth ? And for the record I absolutely love BEW. Not any specific version, It's just that the opening lines ' Gone are the days - plough the fields again' hit me every time. I can see the whole scene, probably sepia coloured, in an instant, and not many opening lines do that for me.

And one of the saddest lines in any song:

"Snowed so hard that the roof caved in,
Delilah Jones went to meet her God And the old man never was the same again"

Also one of my favorite Dead tunes. Fantastic lyrics.

There are alot of things you can get done during that amazing performance of Playin' in the Band; prepare a three course meal, clean your entire home, travel to a foreign country, run a half marathon, start a family...

Thanks for the "no-comment" on the whole source thing. When a show is this good, it really doesn't matter which source you listen to. Afterall, aint it really just about the music? And this music doesn't care how you listen to it, just that you listen to it.

OK, I'm off to paint my house. Think I'll have time to get it done before the second Donna eruption.

Agreed , is this the longest song , in of itself , they ever played ? ( The DS from Rotter. '72 is split by drums ) . This PITB has actually creeped me out a few times , a hairy fun ride (well most of the time ). GD simply stealing your face , all over the place .

Love the Scarlet Begonias on this one! It's quick and punchy, maybe the fastest I've ever heard it.

My first thought was a 46 minute PITB! WTF? How is that even possible? I like a good PITB, but 46 F'n minutes...I don't think so. Well it turns out I was right. It should be listed as PITB>Jam>PITB. And quite the corrosive jam it was..made my teeth hurt in places. Although Phil did some amazing understated things during that extended jam. And even Donna's normal PITB caterwauling was in key and added to the PITB segments.

Yeah, I have a real hard time listening to shows from '74. The band just sounds really lazy and disinterested. Not my musical taste

All the time.. especially if you used to spend time, money blanks, postage ect back-in-the-day trading cassettes!
